    Yale!!!!!!!!! If we're picking more than one school, then Cornell is right up there. I'd love to go to either school

    'Twas Cornell, then 'twas Yale; now, I'm afraid it's a dead heat, I have TWO burning obsessions (I'm a mess!!!):

    Columbia & Yale!

    Of course, the idea of an acceptance from EITHER is completely ridiculous. <img src="graemlins/laughy.gif" border="0" alt="[Laughy]" /> I'll have to find a new obsession really, really, really soon.

    Well, it depends. Case or Mount Sinai, it changes daily. A shared obsession.

    <img src="graemlins/laughy.gif" border="0" alt="[Laughy]" /> That's HILARIOUS, quaileggs! How'd you ever guess?!?

    It was a tie initially between Emory and Dartmouth, but since Dartmouth gave me the boot...

    Ugh, Sea_dragon! I hate JHU :D ! They're the only school to reject me for undergrad AND med school. DAMN THEM! ;)

    That's ok. When they come begging me to work for them in the future... J/K

    good luck

    I gotta say Harvard. It's been a life-long dream to go to Harvard. Still no interview, though. I'm not complaining, though, as Hopkins has accepted me.

    UCLA, UCSF or Stanford... UCLA's currently the front runner since it's the only one I've completed interview AND had a chance to see the beautiful campus.

    We're all good applicants and we've paid enough money for "processing fees". Why can't we be able to just switch places with people at the end of the acceptances/rejections stage in May?! There should be like "Switch Day" - it'd just be a form of match day.

    Schools would get 100% committed/interested students that way and students would be happy.

    For all you Stanford-obsessors out there:
    I liked what I saw at Stanford a lot (gorgeous campus, innovative "flexible" curriculum, webcast lectures, great financial aid, etc). However, I didn't get to meet many of the students while I was there. Could someone please describe to me what they thought of the students they met; my main hangup about Stanford is that I'm worried the students will be "gunner" types who are more interested in textbooks and research than in real people.

    That being said, my obsession is with UCSF (and Yale), but I could become another Stanford obsessor pending what I hear from you all.

    Yale. For sure.

    And I would have added Stanford, except I got rejected pre-secondary.

    Since I was at Stanford as an undergrad (and work there now), I applaud all of you who are obsessed with Stanford Med. The campus is beautiful and the Bay Area is a wonderful (albeit crowded and expensive) place to live.

    Regarding the question about Stanford med students and their level of competitiveness...the feeling around campus is that the med students are generally happy and do work very hard. There is a pretty strong aversion to "gunners" and hypercompetition, both in the undergraduate and graduate communities.
     
  33. UCSF and The University of Michigan. There is a giant gap between those two and my next choice (UCLA or Columbia). UCSF rejected me... but Michigan interviewed me... so I am more than happy.

    UCSF all the way. I would be eternally grateful if I was presented with the opportunity to go there for medical school.

    Mayo--no doubt about it. But I have at least five long weeks to wait before a post-interview decision is made.

    So much waiting!!!!

    I was totally in love with Yale until I interviewed at UPenn. Now UPenn is my number 1 choice. I haven't heard a word from Harvard, so who knows what the future will bring. I definately want to go Ivy if I can. Ivy league schools really take care of and pamper their med students whereas the UCLA and UCSF overwork them and throw them to the dogs (or so I've been told by my friends who are med students there).

    Mine used to be Mayo, but I think I am now becoming obsessed with Case. I don't know if its cuz I was accepted there (the I-like-you-cuz-you-like-me) and not yet at Mayo, but I am definitely a Case-lover now.

    i LOVED chicago-pritzker, awesome school awesome city, even more awesome that they accepted me (and my girlfriend!). That being said I also really liked UCSF and know I'd be totally happy at either place. If we both get the nod from UCSF it'll be a tough decision, but one where there's no place to go wrong :)
